Emerging Maryland-born, Califronia-based singer/producer Lil Seyi is back with his new single “Westside”, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
“Westside” takes the producer’s breezy style and inflects it with a journey of self-discovery and doubt in the wake of moving out to California, where he moved to pursue a Bachelor’s in computer science and start the creative collective SupaStas Entertainment.
Soon after the move, Seyi‘s first appearance in the Kitsuné universe came in the form of last year’s “Evergreen” followed closely by a feature on fellow Kitsuné artist Omolola’s single “Hiding,” but “Westside” is the first of a series of singles releasing throughout 2021 to celebrate his signing to the label.
“To be honest, I really just made music for me, constantly reassuring myself that I’m worth something, trying to channel my feelings into a form I was comfortable with,” adds Seyi. “Now that I’m fortunate enough to have a platform where people actually listen to my music and the stories I try to tell, I want to extend that positive message of hope as far as I can.”
“My freshman year of college, I just started questioning a lot of things about the world and my faith,” he says on the single. “Looking back, I would get answers to those questions but since they weren’t the exact answers I wanted to hear, they fell on deaf ears. I wrote Westside looking back at that whole experience.”
